Is Wudangshangxi station same as Wudangshan?
Is Wudangshangxi the same station as wudangshan? I am travelling from Beijing to Wudang mountains but confused which stop to travel to, it is the G1589 fast train that stops at Wudangshanxi. Is this the WudangShan West station or WudangShan? Also I assume the Wudangshan/xi is nearer to the Wudang mountains than Shiyan? Thank you for helping, Em

They are two different train stations. Wudangshanxi is Wudanshan West this is actually closer to Wudangshan Mountain, only about 10 km.

There is no direct train from Hangzhou to Wudangshan. You need to make a transfer at Hankou Railway Station in Wuhan. The high speed train from Hangzhou to Hankou takes about 4.5 hours and around CNY300 for a 2nd class seat; that from Hankou to Wudangshan takes about 2-2.5 hours and around CNY200 for a 2nd class seat.

There are hotels up on the moutain, mostly at Wuyaling. The ratings vary a a lot among different classes of hotels and in different times. During holidays, the ratings are generally higher. On normals days, it usually varies from CNY200-1500. There are buses sending visitors from mountain foot to the parking lots near Wuyaling.

From Shennongjia to Wudangshan
Can you advise the best connection between Shennongjia and Wudangshan? Probably I'd have only 4 days to visite both sites. Thank you

I heard that there is one morning bus from Shennongjia to Shiyan. If you can take this bus to reach Shiyan, it would be convenient to reach Wudangshan. There should be bus, taxi or train to Wudangshan from Shiyan.

I think the time is not enough. It may take around 40 to 60min to go from Shiyan Station to Wudangshan. Then you still need to walk some distance to reach the ticket office and entrance. Maybe you need to stay in Shiyan city for one night first and then go to Wudangshan the next day morning. Or you can choose a late overnight ride to Xiangyang and then from Xiangyang to Shiyan or Wudangshan so that you can reach there in the moring or around noon.
